Be Willing To Learn Throughout The Life !!

One truck driver was doing his usual load delivery at a mental hospital, by parking his vehicle beside an open drain.

He discovered a flat tyre when he was about to return from the mental hospital. He jacked up the truck and removed the flat tyre to fix the spare tyre. When he was about to fix the spare tyre, he accidentally dropped all the 4 bolts in the open drain.

As he cannot fish the bolts in the open drain, he started to panic as to what should be done?
Just then, one patient happened to walk past him and asked the driver as to why he was looking troubled.

The driver thought to himself, since there is nothing much he can do or this mental joker can. Just to keep the bugging away, the truck driver informed the whole episode to the mental patient and gave a helpless look.

The patient just laughed at the truck driver and said you just cannot even fix such a simple problem? No wonder you are destined to remain a truck driver for life".

The truck driver was astonished to hear such a compliment from a mental guy. "Here is what you can do" said the mental guy... "take one bolt from each of the remaining 3 tyres / wheels and fix it on to this tyre. Then drive down to the nearest workshop and replace the missing ones. Isn't it simple my friend".

The truck driver was so impressed with this quick fix answer and asked the patient "how come you are so smart and intelligent and you are here at the mental hospital?"

The patient replied "hello friend! I stay here because I am crazy but not stupid".

No wonder, there are some people, who behave like the Truck Driver, thinking that others are just stupid. So, guys, though you all are learned and wise, but, just watch out, there could be some CRAZY guys in our professional / personal lives, who could give us lot of quick fixes and brush our wisdom.

Moral of the story : Just do not conclude that you know everything and do not judge people by mere looks/ attire stature or academic background.

Enjoy This Beautiful Morning !!!

To get your ideas across 
use small words, big ideas, and short sentences.

~   John Henry Patterson

Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life.

~   Sophia Loren

Happiness must be cultivated. 
It is like character. 
It is not a thing to be safely let alone for a moment, 
or it will run to weeds.

~   Elizabeth Stuart Phelps

Tact is the knack of making a point without making an enemy.

~   Howard W. Newton

If you want happiness for an hour -- take a nap. 
If you want happiness for a day -- go fishing. 
If you want happiness for a month -- get married. 
If you want happiness for a year -- inherit a fortune. 
If you want happiness for a lifetime -- help someone else.

Spread That Smile !!

Smile costs nothing but creates much.

Smile enriches those who receive without impoverishing those who give it.

Smile creates happiness in the home, fosters goodwill in a business, 
and is the countersign of friends.

Smile is rest to the weary, daylight to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
and nature's best antidote for trouble.

Smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
for it is something that is no earthly good to anybody unless it is given away.

Nobody needs a smile so much as those who have none left to give...

Happy Morning Poem !!

Cultivating with the seeds of gratitude, we can harvest happiness.

" Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough , and more.
It turns denial into acceptance,
chaos to order,
confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast,
a house into a home,
a stranger into a friend.
Gratitude makes sense of our past,
brings peace for today,
and creates a vision for tomorrow. "

Look Forward To Each New Day !!

Laughter is God's sunshine. 

Everyone has beauty but not everyone sees it. 

It's important for parents to live the same things they teach. 

Take time to laugh, for it is the music of the soul. 

Patience is the ability to idle your motor
 when you feel like stripping your gears. 

Love is strengthened by working through conflicts together. ....

We take for granted the things that 
we should be giving thanks for.
